What temperature should a still air incubator be?

100-101 degrees F
Set the temperature of a still air incubator to 100-101 degrees F at the height of the eggs. Air will layer, or stratify in a still air incubator, so where the reading is taken is important. Set the humidity slightly higher, 60 to 65% relative humidity during incubation.

How much water do you put in a little giant incubator?

Ideally, the humidity inside the incubator should be about 50%. As a rule of thumb, keep 1⁄2 cup of water in the middle reservoir in the bottom of the incubator. Add water as needed to keep level 1⁄2 full.

What happens if incubator temperature is too low?

If you are a degree or two too low, your eggs will hatch late and with a reduced hatch rate. No matter what your thermometer tells you, if your eggs hatch early or late, adjust your thermostat settings accordingly. Temperature spikes or valleys: This has to do with occasional drastic changes in temperature.

Why is my incubator not working?

Poor results in hatching are commonly caused by the improper control of temperature or humidity. When the temperature or humidity is too high or too low for a long period of time, the normal growth and development of the embryo is affected.

How many eggs does a Styrofoam incubator hold?

The least expensive incubators are styrofoam models. They hold about 4 dozen eggs at a time, which is probably more than most people will ever need to set for a small home hobby flock. However, these inexpensive incubators have manual temperature control, manual turning, and manual control of humidity.

What temperature should my air incubator be?


Operating Temperature for Manually Turned Eggs Laying on Wire Floor (Do not use these temperature when using an automatic turner).
Quail Eggs 100.5 degrees F
Bantam and Pheasant Size Eggs 100 degrees F
Chicken and Other Large Eggs (including Goose) 100.5 degrees F

How do I get a better hatch rate?

If you aren’t ready to start hatching the eggs right away or don’t have enough eggs collected, you can store them for up to 7 days in a cool (60 degrees or so) spot, at a 45 degree angle, pointy end down. Turning the eggs a few times a day will help keep the yolks centered, which can result in better hatch rates.

Which is better still air or forced air incubator?

Circulated air incubators, also known as forced air incubators, have built-in fans that continually circulate air to maintain sufficient oxygen and keep the temperature even. They are more expensive than still-air incubators but produce a better hatch rate.

What are the names of the Little Giant incubators?

The Little Giant® 9300, 10300, and 11300 series of digital incubators includes a digital control board with one-touch temperature setting. This is vastly improved over previous designs that can be tricky to dial into the desired temperature.

How many eggs can a Turner Incubator hold?

SAFE FOR ALL – The redesigned plastic heater is cooler to the touch than traditional metal heating elements and the mesh plastic screen has no sharp edges for both human and chick safety. 41 EGG CAPACITY – This incubator has the capacity to hold 41 large chicken eggs given the egg cups included in the turner.

What should I look for in an egg incubator?

QUALITY CONSTRUCTION – This incubator is made of durable, warmth-retaining styrofoam, and it includes an LCD display with LED light. It comes with an automatic egg turner that rotates eggs to prevent the yolk from settling to one side.

What kind of incubator can I use to hatch goose eggs?

Can models 11300,10300,or9300 incubators be used to hatch goose eggs. Hi Cathie – There should be ample clearance for most goose eggs in the 9300 and 10300 incubators. However, we do not recommend using the egg turner (as seen in the 11300 model) for any eggs larger than chicken eggs.
